The English Football Association has launched a campaign that encourages women and girls to turn their passion for football into a job. Together with The Women’s Sport and Fitness Foundation, the campaign ‘Kick Off Your Career’ wishes to encourage girls and women to consider a career within football.

The campaign is also supported by former female players who now have various careers within football ranging from medicine, coaching to administration and media. They include among others journalist Jacqui Oatley, football lawyer Liz Ellen, footballer Kelly Smith, Premier League head of governance Jane Purdon, and England National Team Coach Hope Powell.
